    I am trying to find out the meaning and root of the words of Shemsu and shemu. If you understand the full meaning, it's history and can explain it to me, Please share. I will truly appreciate it.

    Thanks

    I actually meant to hit quote - not thanks.


    It seems as though the obvious reason that you are looking to find the root to the meaning of Shemsu or even Shemu is because your looking to see if there is a connection between Shemsu/Shemu and the Hebrew Shem who is supposed to be the father of the Yisrael/Yisraar people correct?

    Thanks for bumping that thread. Those were the days! Brother Nibs did a more than adequate breakdown and I just want to emphasize an earlier point I had made in that thread and it has to do more with the topography of "Upper Egypt" rather than a class of people/warriors, which really has nothing to do with a historical character known as 'Shem".


    This map of ancient Egypt depicts Upper Egypt. Upper Egypt extended from the Libyan Desert south past Abu Simbel. The labelling of "upper" and "lower" seems counterintuitive, with Upper Egypt in the south and Lower Egypt in the north, but in fact relates to the Nile which flows from the highlands of East Africa (upstream) to the Mediterranean Sea (downstream). Upper Egypt was known as Ta-Shemau and was divided into twenty-two areas called Nomes.

    There is an interesting thread on the following forum which gives some reference to where the location of this geographical entity was located in relation to Kush and Nubt (Nubia).

    This is relevant in understanding the historical events unfolding today.

    Yes that is correct. I know khemet and Yashral had a lot of dealings with each another.

    The Shemsu Hor were the Followers of Horus the High Priests of Heliopolis (On), therefore indigenous to the Nile civilization of Ta Shemu.

    Shem were africans that went out in ancient times. They fathered (teachings) the middle easterners.

    my bad this is correct. they were a pre-dynastic also. as far as them having anything to do with the shem of the bible thats a huge reach considering "shemsu" means followers of.

    It is not reaching.....they were called nobles are honorables....There is a connection between them and more than likely it is Cush. Cush had eastern colonies in ancient times...The land of Sumer...transposed later to sumeria...Those names stem from shem.. just pronounced differently.
